Apóla Greek Grill Adds New Signature Shrimp Pita for Spring and LentApóla Greek Grill is keeping its menu fresh by introducing a new Signature Shrimp Pita starting in March.

For a limited time, the popular Greek grill will be serving its Signature Shrimp Pita featuring their hearty shrimp skewer perfectly grilled after being soaked in their one-of-a kind olive oil and herb blend, which is then combined with mixed greens, pickles, red cabbage and a handful of fries on a warm pita.

But the Signature Shrimp Pita isn’t complete without the restaurant’s signature Apóla sauce, a Greek yogurt-based sauce with a tangy blend of cumin, mustard and fresh herbs. March is Greek Heritage Month, and with several people observing Greek Orthodox Lent and Catholic Lent, this new menu item has flavors fit for everyone.
